About this listing
Villa Andalucía is an elegant Colonial home in Tamarindo with two private Casitas, and a private suite inside the Villa for vacationers. Casita Andalucía and Casita Seville were inspired by the Spanish Colonial homes of Spain and Granada, Nicaragua. This romantic Villa is perfect for honeymooners and those in need of a much needed romantic getaway. Nestled in a quiet, private neighborhood of Tamarindo, Villa Andalucía is a 5 minute walk or quick bike ride to shopping, restaurants, and the beautiful beaches of Tamarindo.
The refreshing Tamarindo breezes will keep you cool on a hot day as you relax by the pool. Feel free to take a siesta on the daybed under the covered patio or just chill and read a book in one of the 3 hammocks. Mornings at Villa Andalucia are wonderful enjoying your delicious home cooked breakfast made by Maria Monday through Friday. Breakfast is served on the terraza overlooking the pool and garden or next to the fountain in the bistro area. Kick back and sip on your savory fresh brewed Costa Rican coffee from the coffee bar while you listen to the birds and howler monkeys that occasionally stop by.

Interaction with Guests
You can have as little or as much interaction with Gary and I as you would like. We are thrilled to help you with adventure tour suggestions as well as restaurants and other things to do around town. Looking for privacy, we know how to fade.
We are located in a quiet, residential neighborhood, just the perfect distance to get you to where you want to go fast and yet far enough away to have it quiet and peaceful at night.
We are walking distance to everything or, if you want to get there faster, take our beach cruisers!
Other Things to Note
Boy do we have a wonderful selection of things to keep you happy while here! First off, we have our own Boat and Captain for our guest to fish, snorkel or create the tour you are looking for. Brooks is an all around waterman, he fishes, free dives, spearfishes and is a world class surfer. He can give you surf lessons, take you fishing, give you a spearfishing lesson, take you surfing by boat, you ask and if possible he will create it. He also does nature and birding tours. Besides our in house selection of things to do, we have created a list of our guest favorite things to do while here and found the best adventure companies for them. We are happy to help you get out with the right company that is safe and delivers the goods.
This is not the place for those who want to party and be out all night. This is our family home and we are looking to give you an exceptional, peaceful vacay with good food, comfortable accommodations and host who love what we do.
